The PE was used across multiple years so you also want to check the casting date on the rear of the carrier.  If you ever go inside it, the ring gear is also stamped.

Since it was decked you may as well check the entire pad, you never know what will show up.  Post up pics of the trim tag and rear axle stamp as they become available.

Your pan stamp looks like the 1966 p-glide format, pre Camaro.  The format was based on model year, not calendar year the trans was built.  But pans can easily be changed.  Go to the Drivetrain Decoding section on the main page here, and scroll all the way down to see an example of where a powerglide could have been stamped.  Not all got stamped in 67, but look around the entire leading edge of the bellhousing on both sides to include where it angles back, to see if any partial VIN stamps.  Not easily done while it's in the car.  Assuming it's not been altered, the absence of a partial VIN will only determine if 67 or earlier.  I believe there is also date information cast into the aluminum case, however I'm not sure of the detail level it gives you.

The engine build date stamp will obviously be a help if you can get it.  There won't be a VIN stamp on a 327, but check that area also.

Was your car assembled at Van Nuys?  My 11B RS/SS 350 was missing its original motor, but I did locate and buy the engine from another LOS 350 MU that was around 750 units ahead of mine, on that mixed model line, so around 2 days earlier.  This is the same 657 block casting as you have, and it too is a H66 casting date.  Don't have the pics in front of me but I believe my engine build date was around H196 and the heads were cast close to the block cast date.  So I'd say that at first glance your heads and intake are not date correct, but the block might be the "born with" based on the casting date and what I've observed.  The August engine in an 11B build is possible, although personally I'd just seen it in 350s.

The parts vendors sell the stud for around $5, it had a hex shoulder to screw it into the pump.  I've no idea if the stud was the same for both the banjo and square style pumps, or the length, but you can call.  Here's one:   

They probably also carry these at NAPA etc for less.  If you have a Colvin - Chevrolet by the Numbers book it may have the pump design diagram with dimensions.

It's also found in the Chevrolet Camaro factory assembly manual, UPC 3 starting on sheet A8.  You have to compute the correct Z & J measurements by figuring in your specific model, all your options, engine, trans, tires etc.  Then you move on to UPC 4 to similarly compute the K & D measurements for the rear.  The location to take these measurements is also shown.

I would expect the folks at Chevrolet did a whole lot of market research before deciding on the new model name, plus they may have other plans for Z28 of which we are unaware.  You have to remember they are marketing to the most likely buyer group.  I was told at a dealership this past weekend that most of their Corvettes are bought by 50-60 year olds, 30-40 year olds buy most of the Camaros.

I would also add that you need to do your homework first, before ordering from any vendor.  Do not assume what year they list a part for is 100% correct.  I've seen errors on just about every vendor's site.  For example, many will have parts listed for 67 thru 69, when in fact the part is only correct for 68-69 or just 69.  Seems if an exact part isn't available they rather sell you something close but not technically correct or something that may not have even been used on a certain year.  An assembly manual can help you a lot.  Also ask if in doubt, there's a wealth of knowledge in the members of this site.   
250  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Harrison radiator small tag on: April 06, 2011, 02:24:21 PM
I think it identifies a bad radiator and possibly prone to a mini explosion, so being a bomb expert I will go ahead and come down and take it from your hands, no thanks is needed, just doing my job   Cool

Funny thing is, I always assumed this was an incorrect radiator ever since I bought the car back in 85, probably because it had the wrong a/c condensor.  Yeah, it's been one of those 25+ year projects.  I removed it last summer prepping for an engine swap and didn't really look at it until last month.  It was like Christmas in March.
251  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Harrison radiator small tag on: April 06, 2011, 09:03:32 AM
It's too small for the radiator tag, about half the width of that.  Plus the original UK is still on the other tank where it belongs.  And it seems too wide for a hose clip, plus it doesn't show any signs of ever having any ears for the hose that could have later broken off.  I was thinking it might be a Harrison plant designation if they had several facilities.

252  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Harrison radiator small tag on: April 05, 2011, 09:14:47 PM
Anyone know what the small "BG" tag is on this UK 23 inch 3-row?  It is on the driver side IH tank, so not the remnants of an overflow hose clip.  Radiator is believed to be original to a 67 LOS 11B, L48 with a/c.  Also, does the rail look correct for 67?  Looks like a cross between the 68 and 69 rails shown in the OEM cooling system report section.

253  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: home page camaro pics on: April 01, 2011, 08:58:03 AM
Brought a grin to my face as well.  That 69 looks like the rear axle came off during the tow home, and they kept on going.  Makes me want to go search for the photos of my car when I first got it.

It should all be explained here, makes more sense if you read through it on your own:

The 12 37 on the ring gear is the ratio - 37/12=3.08
255  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Temperature Sender For 67? on: March 25, 2011, 11:21:23 PM
This type, part number is 1513321 - see U17 A1 of the 67 AIM.  The harness clip pushes onto the top of the bayonet from the side:

For comparison, I believe this is the sending unit for cars w/o gauges, and used the same harness and clip:
